  1. Musically, Midnite Vultures is filled with wonderful little quirks, but these are undercut by the sneaking suspicion that for all the ingenuity, it's just a hipster joke.
  2. Midnite Vultues kind of sounds like an album Prince would have made if he were more interested in being a geek than carressing his own ego.
  3. He's got the beat rate up and lots of faux funk happening.
